A quick question to those in the know, and to show that I am still a bit of an amateur at the blogging thing despite my output: am I using Del.icio.us right?
I have been making tags for my posts and sticking them on Del.icio.us so others can ﬁnd them. The tags are mildly different from the Technorati ones I use. I see it as a helpful tool to categorize my better posts.
I know many use it to bookmark everything they love, but I tend to blog about those, or bookmark them internally. So, is my usage of the service acceptable, or, more to the point, useful? Posted by Jack Yan, 02:41
I think thats a great use of del.icio.us , but the Technorati tags are a pain in the ass, its hard to tell when you are linking to something interesting, or every post in the blogosphere tagged "blogging" for instance.
You also might want to try Digging (digg.com) your own posts, its always interesting to see which posts people are into and which ones they aren't.
Thanks, Dan. I know what you mean about the Technorati tags. I have tried to be slightly more economical with them, but Del.icio.us is where I get tighter with tag usage.
I couldn’t get into Digg before, but on your recommendation I will revisit and have a look.
Dan, Digg links up as of now, and I will pop into the site.Post a Comment

With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
